In June 2017 my book Macramé – the craft of creative knotting for your home (Quadrille Publishing) was released. The book takes you through all the essentials: from everything you need to know to get started, to how to think when making large scale projects.
Beginning with the basics, the book takes you through what materials to use, fraying, how to find rope, and what tools you may need. The knot gallary in Macramé covers 30 of the most popular knots plus provides tips on how to create 7 different patterns through various knot combinations. I have also included 21 of my original projects for you to make yourself- everything from wall hangings and plant hangers to a curtain, a bench and much more.
Each knot, pattern and project includes charts and my step-by-step illustrations, combined with clear instructions so that even if you are a beginner you will be able to make those intricate designs!
“I just got into macrame again and have wasted my money on a few other “how to” books. This one is very clearly written and has a wide variety of beautiful projects – no owls!! Highly recommend.”
